Re: Desperate

Hello to everyone who has offered advice. Here is an update - I've been taking 5 mg of hydrocodone and .25 mg of Requip every night about 7 pm. It has been miraculous to say the least. I've been sleeping all night, every night. I haven't been battling my legs. I still have RLS earlier in the day, pa...

Re: Desperate

Holland, Thank you, I understand and agree. I didn't realize that kratom was used instead of an opioid. I just ordered it because I noticed on the discussion board that it seems to be a very common and popular treatment. I'm not looking to add on ---- my belief is that less is more. Would like to ke...

Re: Desperate

Followed the same treatment last night. RLS well controlled, but did not fall asleep as quickly. Went to bed around 11, fell asleep about midnight. Slept all night - woke up with slight headache. Thank you again for the advice. Question about the Red Mang Da which arrived today. How to take it? When...

Re: Desperate

The kindness of strangers has truly moved me to tears. Thank you LegsBeStill, Badnights Beth, Holland & Steve. You have all truly been lifesavers as suicide has been on my mind for quite some time. I don't like to admit it, as I feel there is such a stigma associated with it. I just want you to ...

Re: Desperate

Holland, My leg started jerking about 6:30, so I took the Requip and Norco. I have my compassionate use card for medical marijuana in Florida. I was just using the CBD, because I thought that was the 'relaxation' oil. However, the doctor did prescribe Hybrid oil which is 10 mg / mL of THC. I really ...

Re: Desperate

Thank you Steve and Holland - I just ordered the book "Clinical Management" from Amazon. Thank you for the recommendation. Unfortunately, I no longer have the Horizant. I took it one time, woke up about 2 am in a zombie-like fog. I do not have any gabapentin although my doctor did mention ...

Re: Desperate

Thank you for your message. I've been very depressed this morning. I feel very, very alone. I appreciate you're advice. My frustration stems from not having confidence that any one treatment option will work, and when something does work one night or several nights, the success is short lived and I ...

Desperate

I am depressed and hopeless. I am hypersensitive to all drugs. If there is a negative side-effect, I'm going to have it. I've battled RLS for decades and it's only gotten worse. I've tried to alternate drugs daily or weekly, so as to hopefully prevent augmentation. Horizant puts me in a brain fog, I...

Tortured Newbie

Hello Everyone, I join this site several months ago. Can't remember if I posted anything and I'm having a difficult time navigating the discussion board, so if anyone replies, I hope I am notified or can find your responses. Anyway, I'm 63. The first experience with RLS was in 1977, probably long be...
